I am the author of expect-lite <expect-lite.sf.net> which relies heavily

Expect, originally written by Don Libes, is a program that "talks" to
other interactive programs according to a script. Following the script,
Expect knows what can be expected from a program and what the correct
response should be. An interpreted language provides branching and
high-level control structures to direct the dialogue. In addition, the
user can take control and interact directly when desired, afterward
returning control to the script.
This is a direct replacement for the 2003 version, and can be found at:
Please accept this into the cygwin repository.
I suspect our expect package maintainer (aka cgf) is capable to
update the package by himself.
Moreover the tcltk package in cygwin is based around 8.4 not 8.5.
